Onsite Inspection Times

The City’s Inspectors create each days inspection run sheet based on the locations of each inspection, special inspection requirements (joint inspections with outside agencies for example), and if a request has been made for the morning or afternoon.  Routes are chosen in such a way to prevent wasted time driving from location to location and as such not all specific requests for morning or afternoon inspections can be accommodated.  Between 8:00 a.m and 8:15 a.m. each day, the Building Inspectors will provide the days run sheet to the Building Permit Technicians and the City’s Receptionist.  You may contact them by phone to confirm if you have been scheduled for the morning or afternoon.
